What a beautiful and peaceful place to be in! So many flowers to look at and busy working bees on them! They have lots of benches to sit on and most of them are situated in the shade, which is a plus on a hot summer day! It’s well maintained and clean so you can enjoy walking through the trails here.
Absolutely beautiful spot. Winding trails, huge variety of flowers, trees and plants, plenty of benches to sit down and just be. There's a bog, root-strewn trails, manicured lawns, flower beds, and a Witch Hazel tree. The layout of loosely-connected circles is great for getting lost in thought. Perhaps for a picnic, too! Lots of birds to watch, and hummingbirds, too. You can do it all in under an hour.
